A perfectly balanced noble Malt.

Royal Lochnagar distillery sits in the Highlands near Balmoral Castle at the foot of the Cairngorn mountains. Profiting from the pure waters of the Scarnock springs sits the distillery, their Single Malt has been a favorite of royals around the world after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert visited the distillery in 1848. This was the first-ever royal distillery visit! Their widely beloved bottles are known as delicate Highland malts with notes of light toffee.

Every year, Diageo launches their collection of Special Releases. In 2021, the theme was Legends Untold: untold stories of iconic distilleries. Royal Lochnagar 16 Year Old 2021 Special Release is a noble Malt that’s bursting with aromas of orange zest and green apple. The rich and creamy palate is perfectly balanced with barley-sugar and luscious fruit acidity. Adding a drop of water will awaken the flavors of white grapes. The finish is long and bright.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
